The Meadow Cardigan Dress is a lovely addition to any baby girl’s wardrobe. It is perfect for the Spring and Summer seasons. It can be worn as a short-sleeve cardigan sweater with the opening in the front, or the other way with the buttoned opening in the back as a dress. This particular design features a beautiful, lacy pattern with a sweet and simple trim bordering the main color. As a relatively quick and easy pattern to work up, you’ll have fun crocheting this special handmade gift for your little one, or as a sentimental and heartfelt newborn baby shower gift for an expecting mom! It will surely be treasured for years to come!
